The long way is the shortcut.
Everything needs its time. To prepare a delicious meal. To write a book. To have a special relationship. To become successful at work. It all needs its time. And it is actually OK. Why? Because on our journey we learn, we fail, we improve and that is all so crucial to accomplish our goal. I am not talking about waiting until we are perfect. I am talking about being ready and experienced. The journey itself should be the BIG adventure. So enjoy your ride, learn, create, fail and try again. Because if you try to shorten your way you will actually miss the best part of it. The long way is actually the shortcut.
